Prescription drug misuse and abuse is the fastest-growing form of substance abuse in the U.S., as well as Iowa. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says prescription painkiller overdoses have reached epidemic proportions. Iowa Substance Abuse Information Center is preparing a statewide advertising campaign encouraging Iowa parents of youth age 12 – 17 to talk with their children, secure their medicines, properly dispose of unneeded prescription drugs and contact the center for more information.

The following survey will take only a few minutes to complete and your responses will be anonymous and confidential. The survey is designed to determine the most effective way to educate and empower Iowa parents to prevent the misuse and abuse of prescription medicines by youth. Thanks in advance for your help!
